Bill Kirchen, the “Titan of the Telecaster” is returning to Dayton Ohio for the first time in several years! Kirchen plays Canal Street Tavern on Sunday April 29th with special guests Nicky Kay & his FABULOUS Kay-Tones featuring Crazy Joe! The show starts at 9pm sharp-ish!
Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen celebrates an American musical tradition where rock ‘n’ roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk. Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen sets the stage on fire with his trademark Telecaster licks that drove the Commander Cody classic “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top Ten, and elicits instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, and Elvis Costello.
Kirchen used to be a frequent visitor to Dayton and Canal Street Tavern, and we are thrilled to have him back at last. Kirchen puts on an unbelievable show that has to be seen and heard to believe.
